The frangipani flower that we found exclusively in warm countries has five petals and the centre is often yellow. This flower has a rich history with multiple meanings among the Hindus (dedication and devotion), in Buddhism (immortality), among the Mayans (life and birth).
Frangipani oil is called Ayurveda and has healing powers.
In the south of Wallis we discovered the islet of Saint Christopher. What is interesting is that there is a staircase that leads to the place of meditation that overlooks the lagoon.
The arrival of a minister is a very important event here. The whole territory of Wallis Island is preparing to welcome this representative of the French State as it should.
Mrs Annick Girardin, Minister of Overseas France, arrived today on the commercial flight Aircalin.

Thanks to friends with 2 beautiful canoes, our son had the pleasure of taking his first canoe lesson.
We also took the opportunity to test them and I must say that it is very pleasant and of course physical.
It’s such a quiet place where you can recharge your batteries. The Chapel of Haafuasia is next to the water in a green setting.
Thanks to Wallis fishermen we enjoy delicious and colourful fish. The most difficult thing for me is to transform the raw fish into a fillet…. I don’t have the technique. To make my life easier I only remove scales and fins. Then I put the fish directly in the oven with olive oil. It’s a treat!
On October 1, 2003, six Carmelite sisters arrived in Wallis, from Carmel in Samoa, for the foundation of a Carmel in Holo. Wallis is a 90% Catholic island.
With friends we decided to go to one of the religious masses at 5am. It was very spiritual and enriching. Even if we do not see the sisters (because they are hidden), we were able to hear the power of their voices during the songs.
At the end of the mass, we were able to enjoy this magnificent view overlooking Wallis and its lagoon.
